On a sunny Saturday afternoon in downtown Upper Marlboro, Main Street was blocked off from traffic and filled with eye-catching vehicles as far as one could see for the 12th Annual Cruzin’ Main St. Car Show. What sets this car show apart from the many others is the scene itself. Custom vehicles line the street on both sides while patrons mill about checking them out. The shops are open as well so it is business as usual, except in the form of a block party.
Jeff Wyvill and his team make sure that this event is run smooth so that all can have an enjoyable time. There is not just one genre of automobiles as I saw everything from a 1922 Chevrolet Series 490 to a 2017 Dodge Viper ACR. Patrons, young and old, filled the streets with smiles, laughter and flashing cameras. This car show is held annually by the Upper Marlboro Volunteer Fire Department, the Marlboro Lions Club and Ledos Pizza.
The energy level was high as the music from the DJ covered the streets. There was no shortage of vendors on site offering food, drinks and car collectibles. The judges carefully looked over all the vehicles and the winners were awarded with trophies, gift cards and money. Patrons were also awarded door prizes and swag bags from Mothers Polish. This is by far one of my favorite shows of the year because it is in my area and I am able to connect with many friends and family that are fellow car enthusiasts, such as myself.
